Event Description

Elements Ballet is proud to announce the return of its one-night-only film festival! Elements and Chill, the now annual film screening, will be held in Belmont’s Theatre District at Stage 773 and feature original short films with works by Elements’ choreographers in partnership with local filmmakers.

Elements and Chill will present 12 short films, each featuring works choreographed by Artistic Director Mike Gosney, Executive Director Joseph Caruana, and guest choreographers Anna Long and Victoria Vargas, performed by Elements’ company dancers. For each dance, Elements collaborated with a different, local filmmaker to provide fresh perspective on the company’s signature style of dance.

This year’s filmmakers include Topher Alexander, Rebecca Montalvo, Lonnie Iske, Jordan Selander, Andrew Palmer, Alexander Perez, Paul Myzia, and Brian Vandenbos. Each filmmakers’ distinct cinematography sheds new light on the expressive, rigorous choreography performed by Elements’ company artists.

The program promises an evening of groundbreaking dance that will mesmerize the audience.

Tickets for this event are available for $20.00 online at and at the door.
